I feel like I'm still recovering from Friday. We did Black Friday again this year...this was David's first year going with me though. The past few years my mom and I have gone but I wanted David to be able to experience it this year so I convinced him to go along with me. I tried to prepare him as best I could yet I told him he still wouldn't understand until he got out there that morning and saw it with his own eyes...of course afterwards he was still in shock and couldn't believe that it was real. He said he had fun though...he'll actually go with me again next year :) We got up at 230 and headed out Friday morning. Everything went really well and we got about 85% of our Christmas shopping for the kids done. That's really all we're doing this year is for kids...not so much for the adults this year. It's been a tough year work and money wise around the house this year so it's important that the kids have a good Christmas and we're focusing on them. I am so blessed to have parents in my life that are supportive and make sacrifices for my family in times of trouble. Even though it's been a tough year in many ways we've all made it through. So it's Saturday night and I still feel like I'm behind....I'm tired and absolutely worn out right now. I love Black Friday...it's a blast and an absolute adrenaline rush but it takes me days to recover. Maybe I'll catch up with everything in the days ahead. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving...we had a fabulous time and ate way too much!!!! Now it's runny noses all over our house...Allie's been miserable all day long and Caleb is beginning to come down with it too. Praying she sleeps through the night tonight!!
